Hello, my name is Becky H and I am a Nursery Nurse within the Tweenie room (2-3 years). I am Level 3 qualified in Child Care and Education.

Being 2 years old is an incredibly exciting time. Children are beginning to have a deeper understanding that they have an important place in the world around them and everything is a new exploration.

Communication and language rich environments help children to develop language skills to express their needs and wants. Children in the Tweenie room are very expressive, verbally and non-verbally and we are using their interests to aid their development, especially in areas such as communication and language, physical development and also personal and emotional development.

Name: Emma R
Position: Nursery Nurse
Start: November 2014

Hello, my name is Emma R. I am a Nursery Nurse within the Tweenie room and I hold a level 3 diploma in childcare.

Ensuring each child is allocated a key person, allows us to form close bonds and mutual trust between the staff and the children. Being a key person allows me to have a focussed insight into your child’s achievements and next steps and allows me to offer a personalised curriculum in which your child can thrive.

Each child’s family have access to their learning journey and memory book records which are filled with observations, photos and assessments and we work closely with you to complete these records. Our parents find these documents a fantastic way to see their child’s development and a lovely keepsake for years to come

Name: Lydia G
Position: Nursery Nurse
Start: August 2017

Hello, my name is Lydia G. I hold a BTEC level 3 national diploma in childcare and I work within the Tweenie room with children aged 2-3 years.

I have a real passion for children’s learning and development within this age group and enjoy seeing the progression from children leaving the baby room to entering the Tweenie room. The language and communication skills acquired by children is really interesting and I enjoy using different techniques in order to ensure that every child feels that they can communicate, either verbally or non-verbally.

Seeing children’s confidence rise in their own ability is extremely rewarding, as is the pride that they feel when they have mastered a new skill, especially one which has been practiced a lot. I have high regard for what children can already do and believe in the importance of using this as a starting point for their next steps.

Assured quality care for your children…
